It's good to see Evelyn Harper come back and play a big role on a Men episode. She's important and helps make the show feel a little more like the show of old, instead of the hackfest of the past few weeks where Alan's been the only familiar face in a once great sitcom now drowning in its own flop-sweat.
This one was better than last week, but the whole 'funny' thing remains a problem for Men. At least the 'outrageous' gags this time out actually sort of advance the overall story a little. That counts for something, right?
Overall, a fairly boring episode that carried a few cheap giggles. Good by season 9 standards, anyway.
